Excellent experience of a meal on a stationary locomotive. This restaurant offers excellent meals including nicely prepared pizza. One can also experience golf play while dinning

This is my second time visiting, and have not been disappointed. The same friendly and helpful staff attended to me very carefully and the best value for money in the area. Food is outstanding and really gives the perfect feel of pub lunch. If you enjoy dining local with a different feel this is definitely the place for you.

Restaurant seems to be popular and we had to wait a while for a table. However once we were seated, the service was quick and efficient. Had light snacks which were good but not the house specials.
